PITFT 2.8 not working with Raspbian Stretch Lite 2017-11-29

by jaybeavers on Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:54 am

Trying to set up my new Pi 3 as a web monitor with console output. Installed the Raspian Stretch Lite image, configured it all good.

Then installed the patched kernel per https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pit ... stallation

Now when it boots I see a rainbow on HDMI out, black screen on the TFT and four long, four short blinks on the green LED. I believe this means:

https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q ... ick-4-long
8 flashes: SDRAM not recognised. You need newer bootcode.bin/start.elf firmware.

So, recommended next steps?

Just tested with latest Raspian Stretch Desktop image, same results as with Lite image.
